with the biggest whopper of this campaign. i mean we've seen a lot of big lies coming from the romney campaign. i mean on a lot of different topics right? particularly mitt romney trying to have it both ways or three ways on almost every issue. you never know where he really stands on any issue. the biggest lie of all is this lie in the last couple of days, mitt romney is trying to sell the people of ohio -- it doesn't look like they're buying it. the latest poll shows president obama up five still in ohio. but we know what's going on, right? no doubt about it. president obama is winning ohio. largely because he saved the auto industry and so many -- tens of thousands of jobs in ohio depend on the auto industry. so many families from the auxiliary businesses. in fact, the unemployment rate in ohio is lower than it is nationwide because the auto industry is back. thanks to president obama. g.m. is back making better cars than ever before. chrysler reported an 80% increase in their number in the third quarter of this

absolutely. you can tell that both the obama and romney campaigns are just pouring money into this state. every time you turn on the radio, you hear one of their voices. every time you turn on a television, there is an ad. it's insane. there are signs everywhere, and people are energic and excited about the campaigns. >> jennifer: are the folks that you're meeting are they aware of how special they are how vital their votes are and that their votes count for thousands of others? >> in south colorado, you can tell representative gutierrez said look, obama sent me here for a reason. he didn't send me here to talk and hang out but because you're going to determine the outcome of this campaign, and colorado voters know that. >> jennifer: do you have a sense right now that they feel a difference in the president in in 2008? >> from the voters that i talked to it seems that their problem is not necessarily with problem. it's more about washington and how polarized the politics are. people are sick of the stalemate and they're ready to move on and hoping for change in the next four years 12,347
and then we'll hear the president speak. both mitt romney and obama, he is going to start in ohio today, and spending the day in ohio. romney will go to wisconsin first and then head to ohio. he'll be getting a lot of love over the weekend. what is interesting is both candidates have op-eds appearing on cnn.com today. mitt romney's a very routine, it seems to reiterate all of the same stuff. that he will create 12 million new jobs -- 12 million jobs will be created anyway. more of the same. and he has now taken on the idea that he is going to create real change. i can't believe it's not change. he has got real change compared to the president's change. >> stephanie: i thought he was going to call it of course i never said detroit should go bankrupt. >> sure. the president starts out by talking about how we have come together as a nation after this hurricane, and how we have to continue to where we were before. we'll be right back. day. besides, you can always dvr my show. you really cant' dvr the future of the country. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv

[ cheering ] >> eliot: president obama in ohio in his clogging argument paints himself as son who will do whatever it takes for the american people. >> obama: we've made real progress, but we are here today because we know we've got more work to do. you may not agree with every decision i've made. you may be frustrated sometimes by the pace of change. but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i tell the truth. you know that i i'll fight for you and your families every single day as hard as how. you know that. [ cheering ] >> eliot: i love that passion. for more on the last days of the presidential campaign, let's bring in michael tomasky special co
of "esquire" magazine. both of you gentlemen welcome back inside "the war room." >> good evening, governor. >> hello, governor. how are you? >> jennifer: i am great. charlie let me start with you. how it is that mitt romney can continue to affiliation himself with people who make inane comments like those. >> first of all the jesuate fathers thought me [ inaudible ] he is silent gives consent. why has he gotten away with it -- >> jennifer: why hasn't he said anything at all. >> because he doesn't have to. he has gotten away with everything else. i wish i had a nickel for every pundit who told me last february, oh, he has got to release the tax returns. guess what he hasn't released the tax returns and he is not going to do the next ten days. they telegraph the etch-a-sketch punch six months ago. they said he was going to start lying. and he started right on schedule. and he has gotten away with it. so why wouldn't he get away with chloroforming the crypt keeper and bringing john sununu back.

left but attacks and insults. with just 11 days ago before election day both camps feel the pressure. likely voters favored romney over the president by one point in a "abc news" washington post. and five points in in the latest gallup tracking poll. an american research poll showed the president with a two-point edge. we should know next week whether the singer meat loaf at a rally last night shift the balance of weight in that key state. a purple poll gave thethe one-point engine in cool and showed him tied with romney at 47-47 in virginia. the republican-leaning rasmussen gave obama a two-point lead over romney in florida. david axelrod still seems confident of a obama win leaving romney to place to go. in my view we have got the lead and the ball. the question is how does he change that now. maybe so, but the job numbers that come out the friday before the election still have the potential to change the dynamics in this very tight race. for administer on this speech the every tightens polls i'm joined by christia freeland digital editor at thomson reuters and author of "plutocrat
're powered about the popular vote, you need a mix of both sides. before we had obama had something to back it up. mitt romney he only has flower talk and no details. this time obama has all details but no way of saying it. i'm live to go a fantasy land, you need a little bit of both. there is not a little bit of both to either one of these guys. >> that's funny. there is an inherent problem in saying we need change in the next four years when you've been in the guy in the last four years. >> cenk: it's structural. look at the polling numbers right? let's go to ohio first a-31. romney is losing by four points in ohio. and that's just one poll, the cnn poll but a combination of polls still has president obama comfortably up. >> four polls in ohio two twos, a four and a five. >> cenk: then in nevada president obama has a three-point lead in nevada. if he leads in nevada and ohio, it's a no-brainer, he's a winner. the electoral college is on his side. on the other side, meat loaf is on romney's side. he's about to do one of the worst renditions i've ever seen of any song. let's watch. ♪ ever
and the president is being a president. >> cenk: i think there's some chance that it's a little of both. he has had some mix ups with the romney campaign, they didn't love his speech at the convention, it was into credibilitiered on chris christie. i'm just saying. >> i don't think you orchestrate these things, but there are people who will definitely agree with you. >> cenk: what was romney up to today. >> romney had a relief event in ohio. it wasn't a campaign event though, if you went to it, you did see the romney bio video playing at the event in ohio. there were also people there and you can here mitt romney talking at this event, i believe. >> other people were hurting this morning, they were hurting last night and the storm goes on. i've had the chance to speak with some of the governors in the affect areas and they've talked about a lot of people having hard times. people right here got up this morning, some went to the grocery store i see and purchased things these families will need. i appreciate your generosity. >> my favorite part of this is it was a relief event. the president gets to
've got ads from both sides running, and ad that has become infamous romney totally perverting the reality on what happened with the auto bailouts. let's show you that and get your reaction. >> who will do more for the auto industry? not barack obama. fact checkers confirm his attacks on mitt romney are false. the truth, mitt romney has a plan to help the auto industry. he's supported by lee lee iacoca. >> >> cenk: pants on fire in many ways we've explained. does it matter what the truths is if you can buy an alternate reality? >> you can't buy and alternate reality. the auto workers in ohio understand that the evident on the government on their behalf was real and had real impact. i don't think that when it comes to ohio that mitt romney's going to be able to arrive at the white house in an american made car. [ laughter ] >> cenk: well, i understand that his wife has several cadillacs so it's possible. so, let's talk about why you think ohio, if you think that, as you just indicated, why it's solidly in president obama's camp. >> well, at this point president obama, if you look at all the
today that actually talks about what disaster relief would be like in romney's world this, in fact, he were to push it down to the private sector. let's say that romney gets elected. what would a privatized fema look like? >> there's two possibilities. they're both complete disasters. the first would be to actually truly privatize it. you pay for protection. a tennessee town tried this. the private fire chiefs sat and watched a man's house burn down because the person hadn't paid that protection fee. that would be the first option. only the people who can pay can actually do it. the second option is that okay, the federal government contracts a company to provide such services but remember, that's first priority isn't going to be refugees or people in disaster zones. it will be to their shareholders and to the bottom line. there is one thing to say about blankets and food and shelter is that they all impact profit margins. so you're not going to see the privatized theoretically privatized fema going all out to help p
was strong on defense, and the bush administration pointed out the he wasn't. and exsal ration cuts both ways. >> jennifer: i'm sure that is true. 80% of theed a by president obama this time around are negative. while 84% of mitt romney's are negative. is that more than in the past? >> yeah it's a lot more. there has been a steady increase in negativity since 1960. 2008 broke the record at that point in time and it was about 65% in 2008, and now it is going to be above 80. and it will going to continue until the very end, because these parties both have problems and we have super pacs that have money to burn. >> and these things must work right? >> well they wshg, but in this particular campaign, there are so few undecided that i expect that there are millions and millions of dollars being spent without much movement. >> jennifer: what role -- obviously the media has a role -- and the news media has a role in there. >> i think you hit on a very tab issue. in 1988 advertisement started to get the at attention of the news media, and ever since 1988, they have been given tr
-11 was done by both republicans and democrats. >> cenk: now but at the same time michael you've got a party who ideologically does not believe in this stuff. i'm not just flippantly saying stuff. here was governor romney during the primary debate saying he doesn't believe we should have fema at the federal level. so i'm a little afraid of what happens if mitt romney gets in charge. as a former fema director, are you afraid? >> here's what will happen. mitt romney will get in charge and he'll realize despite that rhetoric, you still need a fema. here's why you need a fema. because there will be -- look, every disaster is catastrophic to the person that's involved in it. but if we have a true catastrophic disaster where you have literally hundreds of thousands if not millions of people homeless, where you have half or a third of the country without power and i don't mean for five days or ten days but i'm talking about months on end you're going to have to have a federal coordinating agency. that will be fema. but here'
of cuts both ways but if you buy into the idea that really mitt romney is the one who needs to make something happen here in the last week, i don't think this is what he really wants to see. >> bill: i would add one other factor which is, in the meantime, mitt romney is twiddling his thumbs and president obama is on national television and doing his job. and he's not just talking about it on television. he's actually doing his job. and going to fema headquarters and meeting with fema's leadership. making sure all of the pieces are in place and talking to all of the governors republican and democratic governors signing emergency declarations and is really the man in charge of the federal response to fema which certainly helps put him in a new light. judd, good to talk with you as always. we look forward to welcome youing back into the studio next tuesday. election day. election day! election day judd next tuesday. thanks, judd legum. editor in chief of think progress. here in the "full court press." more about --
romney to knock it off. >> cenk: all right, that's pretty good. you know when he gets excited his voice goes up a little--not true. but it isn't true. both candidates have been crisscrossing the country especially president obama. i get the sense that he might go to ohio a couple of times. tell me about it. >> but a look at the rest of his campaign schedule makes the buckeye state look like an airline hub for air force hub through election day. for his part mitt romney is not only focusing on ohio but also hoping to win over wisconsin. he's looking to broaden the battleground map campaigning sunday and visiting new hampshire twice, the smallest swing state that may be edging in mr. romney's direction. >> cenk: all right, now where is it edging? lucky for you we have the numbers. latest polls 50%-47% in favor of president obama in ohio! now what did i tell you was key to the election night? you're going to look out for owin. that's "o" as in ohio "w" which is, "i," in "with a and nevada. they are there with the two two first baptist church to four-point--there with two two- two- to four-
been top surrogates for romney. >> right. right. and i will say that is the silver lining in the horrible tragedy, is you have both sides really working together and very closely, and we don't have to throw stones either way. we can just celebrate that. unfortunately it has taken this to create that but both sides are working together seemingly very well and hopefully the folks on the east coast will get some relief. >> stephanie: we have had other obama surrogates on, and why are our surrogates so much hotter than theirs including you. >> i was about to say i will take myself out of that, and just appreciate their hotness -- >> stephanie: and we will put you right back in. >> yes, what i think we're missing is an actual statistical breakdown of our surrogate hotness. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: it's a landslide. ben, we can't say it enough get out and vote, we have your website posted. any other tips for us? >> no, you have to understand your local election rules. in many, many states obviously early voting has been going on for a long time. and get ou
. president obama, a big two thumbs up for him. i heard romney is going around with a bus tour supposedly transporting this and that -- >> right. >> caller: and all in all he is trying to look for votes. i thought both sides has suspended campaigns because of this emergency situation. unlike president obama he has reached out to every single governor, letting him know that he is there for them all they had to do was pick up the telephone and call him directly. >> personally. yep. >> caller: exactly. i saw the press conference with chris christie. he is a republican governor who initially endorsed mitt romney but he has been speaking nothing but praise for president obama. he said he felt so relieved and glad that he had that conversation with president obama. >> yep. >> caller: i think even some republicans may have second thoughts that the idea of privatizing fema -- if you thought that bush & company's response to hurricane sandy was bad, if fema was privatized it would be a long worse. >> it would be what haliburton in iraq. >> exactly. >> we have one more hour o
in the romney campaign about momentum? it is just bluff? or do they think they are ahead? >> most of it is just bluff. i don't think that they have some huge crushed momentum and both candidates do that all the time. so rhetorically they say it but they know probably they are a little bit down in ohio, or obviously they think the gap is closeable. but i think that they look at the electoral map, and they see if they don't win ohio they need to run the table pretty much everywhere else and in wisconsin -- and we're going to wisconsin tonight actually, and we'll stay mill waky. all right. james so good to have you here this morning. >> thanks, bill. >> bill: appreciate it very much. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." the powerful my steal an election but they cannot steal democracy. >>and now to my point. that is a whole bunch of bunk! the powerful my steal an election but they cannot steal democracy.

about mitt romney's flip-flops and she was saying well, obama has more. you could say that. but it would be a complete lie. >> right. that's it. oh, both sides they both do it. everybody flip-flops, everybody lies. >> i could say i've had as many women as wilt chamberlain but that would not be as close to being true. >> maybe this is a mormon thing. you know, i'm going to blame mormon. i've known mormons and every time i've known a mormon, they freak me the hell out. >> stephanie: we end on that politically correct note. thank you, rude. >> it freaks my out! >> i'm sorry. i'm going to go to the last bastian of prejudice. religion. because it is a choice. we're allowed in that way. i'm trying to talk my way out of this. >> stephanie: you keep back-pedaling. all right. i'm going to start a spinning studio where everybody backpedals. rude pundit, love you honey. sue he next week. >> bye. >> stephanie: 47 minutes after the hour. right back on "the stephanie miller show." >> announcer: if you turn
reached out to governors of both sides. romney as far as we know only spoke to the republican governors, but he did cancel -- at least canceled some of his campaign appearances. how long does this last? >> well it might be a little bit of a cat and mouse game. you can imagine, particularly if you are romney governor there is a tremendous desire to have him out on the stump particularly in battleground states and at a time when so much free media coverage is being diverted away from the race, quite naturally to sandy, i think it presents a lot of real practical problems for romney who then has to focus or have his troops focus on a ground effort and also on paid media. it is hard to see any which this rebounds to romney's favor, especially if the president is staying in washington and oversee an effort which may at least in the early goings which has been judged of being fairly effective even by some republicans, if it ends up being more effective than the fema effort in new orleans, then i think romney has some problems. >> jennifer: i think it may be a way that i
in the cleveland area, romney is back on sunday. paul ryan is here all weekend. and then on monday both campaigns are going to finish out the ohio phase of their efforts down in columbus, with live music and all the trimmings. yes, they're never going to come and visit us again when this is all over. >> jennifer: i don't know about ever, you guys are the bell of the ball. you have to be glowing in all of this attention. obviously another thing that is not getting much attention, but you know, we have been focused on super storm sandy causing damage obviously on the eastern seaboard but i'm told it also caused damage in the ohio. what is the assessment of the damage there? >> the electricity is still out in pockets of northern ohio, the cleveland area. i was checking earlier and there are 40,000 to 50,000 homes. my power just went on last night. and the cleveland proper still doesn't have lights. they're hoping to have all this resolved on monday. but there is concern about polling stations on tuesday. >> jennifer: hopefully everybody is up on tuesday. i'm sure the campaigns are looking at that, b
